Putins War

Moskva Sinksva


After the Russian warship, Moskva was struck by two Ukrainian missiles, the official position of the Kremlin was “nyuh-uh.” The first response was that it was a small fire from an explosion in their ammunition storage. That could be true. There was an explosion in their ammunition storage…after it was hit by two Ukrainian missiles. As the ship was being towed to a Russian port in the Black Sea, it sank. The Russians blame “heavy seas” for the sinking.

Here’s a fun fact: Moskva was built in Ukraine. It’s an old ship from the Soviet era, when Ukraine was a part of the Soviet Union against its will, like how it’s against our will that Florida is a part of the United States. The ship was laid down in 1976 and launched in 1979. It’s served in Russian conflicts in Georgia, Crimea, and Syria…everywhere Russia shouldn’t have been.

The Moskva wasn’t just any old boat. It was the flagship of the Russian Black Sea fleet. Russia stepped up its attacks in Eastern Ukraine after the sinking. Some Russian officials, forgetting the state explanation, said that Ukraine sinking the Moskva is an “act of war,” after Russia’s been bombing that nation for the past five weeks.

Russia claims the entire crew of 510 was evacuated, but several family members of the crew are wondering why they’re not getting any letters or phone calls from their missing sons. As Ad-Rock said in “Rhymin’ and Stealin’,” they delivered Colonel Sanders down to Davy Jones Locker.

Vladimir Solovyov, Russia’s Tucker Carlson who’s not Russia’s actual Tucker Carlson, said on his popular Russian state TV show, “Vladimir 2Night” (I made that up), “Just explain to me how you managed to lose it!” Yeah, as if it was misplaced. Have you checked the couch cushions? Solovyov was expressing anger at the Russian Navy which means the other Vladimir is extremely upset and soon, a Russian Navy fall guy will fall off the top of a building in Moskva, which is Moscow. Solovyov is considered the “voice of Putin.” He doesn’t say anything unless Putin says it’s OK, kinda like the way Putin writes the talking points forTucker Carlson, Ted Rall, and Donald Trump.

Whether it was hit by Ukrainian missiles, the ammo storage just self exploded, a permed-up sailor left a plugged-in curling iron on his bunk, or someone was deep-frying a turkey in the cargo hold (those things are dangerous. I’m surprised Bubba terrorists aren’t using them on black churches. synagogues, mosques, Disneyland, and capitol buildings), the loss of the Moskva is a heavy loss for Russia’s war effort. The sinking doesn’t just eliminate one ship from firing at baby hospitals in Odessa. It eliminates several, at least for the time being.

Moskva wasn’t a ship that conducted land attacks. It provided air cover and coordinated the attacks from other ships in its fleet. The Moskva is the largest ship to be sunk in combat since World War II. Additional humiliation for Russia is that Moskva is named for Moscow, Russia’s capital. This is another instance of Russia underestimating the fighting capabilities of Ukraine. The Ukrainians were not supposed to be able to sink the Moskva as it’s a ship designed to defend against incoming missiles.

Another fun fact: Moskva was the ship at Snake Island at the start of the war ordering Ukrainian soldiers to surrender, and got the reply, “Russian warship, go fuck yourself.” Right now, crabs are fucking it.

I try to avoid using clichés in my work, like sinking ships. The sinking ship analogy is one of the most overused clichés in the political cartooning business. Nearly every cartoonist has drawn a sinking ship at some point in their career, but some jackholes use it like it was forced upon them. Google “Gary Varvel sinking ship cartoon.” To be fair, I’ve drawn at least three “Where all the white women at” cartoons over the past five years or so. I’ve drawn two Jerk cartoons, where Donald Trump is Steve Martin in “The Jerk” wearing the bathrobe and clutching several items while saying, “I don’t need anything…except this lamp.” I’ll probably never use that one again as between my two Jerk cartoons, another cartoonist used it and then publicly accused me of stealing it from him.

But then again, never say “never.”

When Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani fled his nation as the Taliban was taking over, I drew a sinking ship cartoon with Ghani paddling a lifeboat away. It was the perfect analogy for the situation, but I felt dirty. I promised myself that I would not draw another sinking ship cartoon unless it pertained to an actual sinking ship. Then, I got an actual sinking ship. I thought what better way to use a cliché about an actual sinking ship than to make the cliché the joke? It mocks my entire industry, myself included.

Now let’s see how long I can go without drawing a sinking ship again. Drawing cartoons about actual ships that sank doesn’t count.

Music Note: I listened to Led Zeppelin while drawing today.

Bucha Trump


After Ukrainian forces retook the city of Bucha, a suburb of Kyiv, hundreds of murdered civilians were discovered. The mayor says nearly 300 bodies have been found in mass graves and on the streets. Many bodies were found with hands tied behind backs. Russia says it’s all a hoax.

At the very least, to claim dead civilians are being discovered in areas they’re retreating from, Russia has to admit it’s retreating. Nope, that’s being gaslighted too.

But Russia is calling the massacre a hoax and claiming all the bodies, if they weren’t killed by Ukrainians, are actors playing dead. One problem with that is there is satellite imagery showing many of these bodies have been lying in the streets for weeks while Russia still controlled the city. Those actors are dedicated.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki called Russian actions in Bucha “genocide.” Zelensky will speak to the United Nations about Bucha today but first, he had to address the Grammys, making the Grammys relevant for the first time in forever. President Biden said he was right when he called Putin a “war criminal.”

In Russia, the murders are being denied. A 52-year-old Moscow engineer said, “If this is not fake, my brain refuses to accept it,” which sounds like something a typical Fox News watcher would say.

A lot of American “brains” that have supported and defended Putin are not accepting it either, or at least they’re being silent about it.

Donald Trump called Russian President Vladimir Putin a “genius” and “savvy” for his war strategy. What does he say now that there’s proof Russian soldiers are rounding up civilians, tying their hands behind their backs, and shooting them in their heads? He hasn’t said anything regarding that, but he has asked Putin to find him some dirt on Joe and Hunter Biden.

Trump and his goons are not good with facts. At his hate rally last weekend, a sitting member of Congress spoke and gave Donald Trump credit for the killing of Osama bin Laden, which happened under the orders of President Obama while Trump was firing Gary Busey on The Apprentice. Donald Trump did not correct the nice Congresswoman. By the way, Gary Busey is still on the loose.

Osama bin Laden was killed in 2011 and Trump didn’t take office (sic) until 2017. In case you’re a Republican, 11 comes before 17. Lisa McClain, the dumbass congresswoman, also claimed we didn’t have any wars during the Trump presidency (sic) but we have one now in Ukraine. First, we’re not fighting in Ukraine. Second, U.S. troops fought in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Syria during the Trump presidency. There was also military involvement in Yemen (where a U.S. service member was killed), Somalia, Libya, Thighland, and they’re still counting the bodies at Yo-Semite (seeing if you’re paying attention).

But Trump, who’s never silent, especially for seven hours and 38 minutes, has been silent about Putin’s genocide. He hasn’t even posted about Bucha on Truth Social, but to be fair, he hasn’t posted anything on Truth Social.

Tucker Carlson, who asked rhetorically why he should “hate” Putin and has said he’s “rooting” for Russia, has not criticized Putin’s war crimes but he has accused Ukraine of committing war crimes without any evidence.

Sputnik Boy usually spanks out 27 tweets a day in defense of Russia but his account was strangely silent over the Bucha massacre yesterday, but has since found his footing and has now posted a string of whatabout tweets on other massacres. Oddly enough, he made a post yesterday defending whatabout arguments.

There is a sickness and depravity to “root” and cheer on murderers. It’s worse than going to a slasher movie and cheering for Jason, Freddy, Michael Myers, Darth Sidious, or Jar-Jar. This is not a debate like who’s the real bully in the Karate Kid, Ralph Macchio or William Zabka. Putin is the bad guy. Putin is a war criminal. Putin is committing war crimes.

This war is not the fault of President Joe Biden, Volodymyr Zelensky, or NATO. Despite what you read on Gab or Truth Social, nobody “goaded” Putin to start a war. And even if someone did “goad” Putin, it would still be his fault. He’s an adult and not a baby being trolled on Facebook.

To excuse or remain silent over Vladimir Putin’s war crimes is the equivalent of defending Hitler over the Holocaust. Yes, this comparison is apt. Comparisons to Hitler are valid when mass graves are being found, not when your favorite goose-stepping blogger’s speech is protested at a university or when trans Potato Head is allowed to swim with girls.

Even the Republicans who defended Trump’s extortion of Ukraine’s president by withholding U.S. military aid, for defense against a possible Russian invasion, for dirt on the Bidens, are calling Putin a war criminal.

Just like we remember who supported Nazis, who supported the racists in the Civil Rights movement, who supported Apartheid, and who voted for Trump, we’ll never forget your support of Vladimir Putin’s genocide.

Regime Change


During a speech he was giving in Warsaw, Poland last week, President Joe Biden improvised and said, “For God’s sake, this man cannot remain in power.”

President Biden was talking about Russian president Vladimir Putin. After he said it, everyone lost their shit because it’s never official U.S. policy to remove foreign leaders…except when it is. The United States has removed a lot of world leaders. Sometimes, the U.S. removes the leader of a nation with an invasion, as we did in Iraq and Afghanistan. Other times, it’s more covert and an operation of the CIA, which has engineered the removals of leaders in Africa, South America, and the Middle East. These things tend to come back and bite the United States in the ass. Remember the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis?

Secretary of State Antony Blinkin immediately released a statement saying, “uh-uh, we don’t do that.” The White House scrambled with an official saying, “The president’s point was that Putin cannot be allowed to exercise power over his neighbors or the region. He was not discussing Putin’s power in Russia or regime change.”

In the past, President Biden has called Putin “soulless,” a “butcher,” a “pure thug,” a “murderous dictator,” and most recently, a “war criminal.” But it’s bad policy to publicly call for regime change unless you’re Donald Trump dropping bombs on Iranian generals or George W. Bush dropping bombs on Saddam Hussein’s palaces. During Bush the First’s Desert Storm, they never officially called for the removal or death of Saddam Hussein, but the weren’t trying to renovate his bathrooms either by dropping smart bombs on his palaces.

Now, Vladimir Putin will portray himself as the victim of U.S. aggression attempting to oust him from power…while he attempts to oust the president of Ukraine from power.

President Biden said yesterday that he was not calling for regime change in Russia and his words were nothing more than “personal feelings” stemming from “moral outrage.” He said, “Nobody believes I was talking about taking down Putin.”

While a president shouldn’t call for the ouster of foreign leaders, I understand the desire that evil people don’t control entire nations. Biden shouldn’t have made that statement, but I’m not rushing to condemn it because the man he’s talking about removing tried to remove democracy from our nation.

Vladimir Putin interfered in the 2016 presidential election in an operation called “Project Lakhta” to defeat Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and install Donald Trump into the White House. Under the Russian president’s orders, a troll farm was created in St. Petersburg, Russia called the Internet Research Agency. They created thousands of social media accounts pretending to be Americans in radical groups, from hyper leftists to white nationalists racists. They promoted events for Trump and spread misinformation about Hillary Clinton. Hackers from Russia’s military infiltrated the Democratic National Committee, the Clinton Campaign, and other Democratic groups. The stolen files and emails were then given to Wikileaks, DCLeaks, Guccifer 2.0, and the Trump Campaign, which Donald Trump would read aloud at his hate rallies. The Russians even tried to directly give the Trump campaign dirt on Hillary Clinton, with Don Jr. hosting the Russians in Trump Tower on 5th Avenue.

The Russian misinformation campaign is credited for Trump winning Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan by using Facebook ads to target voters leaning toward Jill Stein, which would take votes away from Hillary Clinton, thus giving Trump the state. Trump spent the next four years boasting about winning these states despite losing the popular vote to Clinton. Four years later, President Biden slipped all three of those states away from Trump with much larger margins than Trump had won them in 2016.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation couldn’t prove direct cooperation between Trump and Russia despite numerous contacts between the Trump campaign and Russian officials, but concluded that Russian interference was “sweeping,” “systematic” and “violated U.S. criminal law.” Mueller indicted 26 Russian citizens and three Russian organizations. It also led to indictments and convictions of several Trump goons, several of whom were later pardoned by Trump.

The Republican-led Senate Intelligence Committee issued a report that said the Russian government had engaged in an “extensive campaign” to sabotage the election in favor of Trump, which included assistance from some of Trump’s own advisers.

The GOP welcomed this interference and then-Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell refused a request by President Obama to join him to denounce the attacks. Donald Trump even publicly requested that Russia help his campaign. From after the election to today, Donald Trump has continued to deny any Russian interference occurred or helped him win the White House. He even stood next to Vladimir Putin and took the Russian’s side over American intelligence saying, “My people came to me, (Director of National Intelligence) Dan Coats came to me and some others saying they think it’s Russia. I have President Putin, he just said it’s not Russia. I will say this, I don’t see any reason why it would be.”

We are still cleaning up from the puppet Putin put in charge of our nation. President Biden is repairing NATO and other relationships with all our allies from the destruction of Putin’s orange-flavored shitweasel. For the next 30-40 years, we will have judges in federal courts who were installed by Vladimir Putin’s election interference. Three members of the Supreme Court would not be there today, and for the rest of their lives, if not for the efforts of Vladimir Putin.

Vladimir Putin attacked our nation in 2016 with an orange shit bomb. He attacked it again in 2018 and in 2020. He’s attacked our democratic allies’ elections. And, he’s going to do it again in 2024. If Putin succeeds with regime change in the next presidential election by installing Trump once again, I believe that’ll be the end of our democracy and the beginning of a fascist state controlled by cult worship.

So, yeah…we shouldn’t be happy with President Biden for saying out loud he wants a regime change in Russia. But the people who really don’t want regime change in Russia are Republicans who accepted Putin’s help with regime change in America.

Why Do I Hate Tucker?


Even though Fox News is more of an entertainment outlet than a real source of news, actual journalists do work at Fox News. Sure, you don’t see them in prime time and a lot of their contributions get manipulated to push agendas over news, but there are journalists at Fox News who take their jobs seriously.

But while Fox News highlights hacks like Greg Gutfeld sneering at actual news and Tucker Carlson defending Vladimir Putin while sitting in a comfortable studio where the greatest dangers are sniffles from the brisk central air system, real journalists like Pierre Zakrzewski, Oleksandra Kuvshynova, Benjamin Hall, and Brent Renaud are in war zones exposing the truth to the rest of the world.

Last week, Greg Gutfeld claimed the media were emotionally manipulating viewers with footage from the war in Ukraine. Since Fox News is the number one “news” channel in ratings, they are the media. And a lot of that war footage was coming from Pierre Zakrzewski and Oleksandra Kuvshynova who were risking their lives while Gutfeld was on the air downplaying their contributions.

Benjamin Hall, another actual journalist at Fox News who was on the ground in Kyiv, rebuked Gutfeld explaining to him, “This is not the media trying to drum up some emotional response. This is absolutely what’s happening.” Hall should know better than Gutfeld as he’s not only on the ground covering the war, he was injured shortly after his exchange with Gutfeld.

Greg Gutfeld should apologize, not just to Hall, but to his viewers for downplaying a war in favor of his pro-Putin bias. He should apologize for not doing his job.

Shortly before the invasion began, Tucker asked, rhetorically, “Why do I hate Putin so much?”

Tucker did an entire segment saying, “It may be worth asking yourself, since it is getting pretty serious, what is this really about? Why do I hate Putin so much? Has Putin ever called me a racist? Has he threatened to get me fired for disagreeing with him?”

Tucker asked his viewers whether Putin had promoted “racial discrimination” in schools, made fentanyl, attempted to “snuff out” Christianity, or eaten dogs. Tucker said, “These are fair questions, and the answer to all of them is ‘no.’ Vladimir Putin didn’t do any of that. So, why does permanent Washington hate him so much?”

Tucker, I can give you two damn good reasons to hate Vladimir Putin: Pierre Zakrzewski and Oleksandra Kuvshynova. We can also include Benjamin Hall and Brent Renaud.

Vladimir Putin killed Pierre Zakrzewski this week. Zakrzewski was covering the war on the ground in Ukraine so his colleagues back home, like Tucker and Greg, could report the information and know exactly what was going on. It’s just a shame Tucker and Greg abused the resource that was Pierre Zakrzewski.

Pierre Zakrzewski was an Irish photojournalist and a fixture in war zones and in addition to Ukraine had covered conflicts in Iraq, Syria, and Afghanistan. Fox gave the cameraman the company’s “Unsung Hero” award for helping evacuate Afghan citizens who had worked for the network along with their families last summer.

Oleksandra Kuvshynova was also murdered by Vladimir Putin this week. She was serving as a consultant for Fox News in Ukraine, helping the network’s team navigate the area, gather news, and speak with sources.

Pierre Zakrzewski and Oleksandra Kuvshynova were killed when the car they were traveling in came under fire. Benjamin Hall, who had to rebuke Greg Gutfeld that this was is actually happening and not some anti-Putin media extravaganza, was in the same vehicle and injured.

Brent Renaud, a documentary filmmaker who was in Ukraine for Time Studios, was killed last week in a suburb of Kyiv.

Journalists are putting their lives at risk to bring us the news. It’s just too bad that the majority of viewers are watching an outlet like Fox News.

While the goons at Fox News would rather defend Putin and repeat his propaganda, real journalists are in danger covering news in a war zone. Fox News’ Pentagon correspondent Jennifer Griffin said, “If ever there was a time that the world needed journalists, reporters, risking their lives to tell these stories, it’s now. Without a free press, the autocrats win.”

We do need journalists. What we don’t need are the Tucker Carlsons and Greg Gutfelds posing as journalists. Tucker and Gutfeld, instead of being cheerleaders for Vladimir Putin, should understand why they should hate the man who murdered their colleagues.

Sure, Tucker. Putin’s not eating dogs or making fentanyl. He hasn’t fired you or tried to “snuff out” Christianity. He hasn’t taught any Critical Race Theory courses in our schools. He’s never even called you a racist. So, why hate Putin? There are a lot of good reasons to hate Vladimir Putin, like his killing of civilians, but you can hate him because he killed your colleagues.

Don’t Say “Boom”


Is it a coincidence that Vladimir Putin and Ron DeSantis are both homophobes?

The president of Russia claims there are no homosexuals in his nation. Ron DeSantis started a war against the LGBTQ and education community long before Russia invaded Ukraine.

After attacking educators over face mask mandates and saying parents should make those decisions, Ron DeSantis attacked kids whose parents had made the decision for them to wear face masks. Now, DeSantis is expected to take the hand that pointed that bony finger at those kids, and sign into law the “Parental Rights in Education” bill, which is more commonly known as the “Don’t Say ‘Gay”” bill. Basically, the bill is giving rights to pick on gay and trans children. Republicans are sweethearts.

While Vladimir Putin is literally killing children in hospitals, apartments, schools, theaters, etc, from the bombs he drops in what amounts to war crimes, Ron DeSantis is also attacking children for his own selfish political benefits. Conservative parents sure do love picking on children who look different whether they’re gay or non-white.

Look at what conservatives have done with anti-Critical Race Theory laws. They don’t change anything but they sure do make racists feel warm and squishy inside. These types of legislations are presented from the standpoint that conservatives are the victims.

If you teach that slavery was a bad thing, or that it even happened, then you’re making white conservatives feel bad about being white, or at least, that’s what you’re trying to do. This nation enslaved black people for over 200 years but talking about it now makes white people feel bad. If you mention anything about gender identity or sexual orientation, then a formerly straight third-grader may return home singing Barry Manilow’s “Copacabana.” We can’t have that. Pound your fist on your desk and say it with me, “WE CAN’T HAVE THAT!” Once that gay earworm gets in your head, there’s no coming back.

These Republican arguments make as much sense as Putin’s that he’s invading Ukraine to denazify it. Sure, there are Nazis in Ukraine, but there were probably more Nazis attacking the Capitol for Donald Trump on January 6, 2021. Can’t we denazify Mar-a-Lago?

I’m pretty sure nobody is teaching elementary students in Florida about gay sex, straight sex, or any sex. But being gay is something that should be acknowledged, and goddammit, normalized. The greatest fear of Republicans is that we’ll remove the stigmatization of being LGBTQ, and then a day will come where kids won’t be bullied for it anymore. Oh, the horror. How will future jocks who are unable to come to terms with their own confusing homosexual feelings supposed to cope if they can’t give gay kids swirlies? In case you’re a Republican, a swirlie is when you take a gay kid’s head and a toilet…oh, you already know what this is.

Ron DeSantis and Florida Republicans aren’t protecting children. They’re protecting their own hate.

Whether the wars are cultural or literal, Republicans, Ron DeSantis, and Vladimir Putin should leave children out of it. And personally, I’d be more than happy to give Ron DeSantis a swirlie.
